Good vs. Evil. Spies. Kidnapping. Mad Scientist. Love. History. Honor. Friends. Betrayal. War. What more could you ask for? This books seems to have it all. It is the year 2217 and Raphael Renzo’s family is on the brink of civil war in the heart of London against Lord Pearson and his gangs of thugs.
Brownlee’s second book, How the Tiger Faced His Challenge continues the dystopian fantasy of Skye Archer and Raphael Renzo. Both are among the few who have the ability to morph into their spirit animal. She a wolf, he a Bengal tiger. Skye’s impulsiveness sets off a series of events that escalates an already explosive tension between the two factions fighting for control of London. Will Good win against Evil, especially when things are not as they seem?
The pace of the book starts off rather slowly, but when it takes off it goes full speed ahead. The plot twists were well placed and unexpected. There was a great deal of immaturity exhibited among the younger characters in the book given their ages. A lot of the thought process was separated out by parenthesis which I found annoying. And, there were a number of timeline inconsistencies.
It was an interesting book, but not such that I could not put it down. While you did not need to read the first book in the series to enjoy this one, you will have to read the next to complete the storyline. 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
